So, you finally heard back from that job in Portland, did you? Now’s the right time to pack up your belongings and get a head start on that move, especially if you’re only a few weeks away from your moving date.

Time and time again, we notice that the biggest mistake people make when preparing to move is waiting until the last minute. It often takes fewer than three days for most families to pack up a home (five days at the latest) if you pack efficiently. 

Instead of scrambling at the eleventh hour to get all your things over to the new location, why not work with Priestley & Sons? We’re the best choice of moving companies in Gresham for many reasons. 

Allow us to share three qualities that help us stay at the top of the list–and why they’re important during your big move.
